Description Ryan McCabe 2007-02-18 17:42:40 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #228637 +++ The password for the remote system(s) is persisted between two page loads in the Add System/Cluster task flow. If it were persisted in the server session it would not be a problem, but instead it it is returned to the browser as a 'Value' attribute in a password entry field widget. This means that if the user were to 'View Source', the password would appear as plaintext in the html. NOTE: All luci interaction is done via HTTPS; still this does present a remote, but possible means of exploit. -- Additional comment from email@example.com on 2007-02-13 22:54 EST -- Created an attachment (id=148037) copy of letter sent to security response team -- Additional comment from firstname.lastname@example.org on 2007-02-14 09:31 EST -- This is an issue that would require quite unlikely circumstances to exploit (user walks away, works offline) and is mitigated from a man-in-the-middle by SSL, so I'd rate this as having low security impact. http://www.redhat.com/security/updates/classification/ -- Additional comment from email@example.com on 2007-02-14 10:05 EST -- Ack for 5.1 train.
